The Sky Is the Limit/NYC consists of fleeting messages from ad vertising billboards and storefront signage written by a skywriting plane. Phrases like “Last Chance” or “Now Open” will gradually unfold\, and then f ade back into the air\, inviting viewers to interpret the language in their own unique way. With the current uncertainty in the economy\, The Sky Is the Limit/NYC is intended to play upon universal longings for hope and change by engaging the most potent symbol of longing in the landscape: the sky.

\n
In the Wizard of Oz\, the Wicked Witch of the West writes ‘Surrender Dorothy’ in the sky\,” says Beck. “The S ky is the Limit/NYC echoes this vague threat\, in this case of a doubl e-dip recession\, while using the media of smoke to create a drawing in the sky.”
